*Does not fit perfectly on some markers
*Only holds 170 paintballs
This hopper is overall a good buy for your money. I've had the ricochet for about 3 months and have had no problems or broken paint whats so ever. It has also kept up with my rate of fire. I've had a few deflect off and a few break on it, but regardless of what hopper you have you will have paint break on it. The ricochet also is more compact looking sitting on top of your marker vs. the view loaders. I'd also like to mention, me and 3 friends purchased hoppers at the same time. They both purchased evolution II's and I purchased the ricochet. Let me tell you, both of the evolutions have had problems already. One of the evo's was malfunctioning during a game and had to be sent to the manufacturer for replacement. The other evo took a hit on the lid and cracked. My ricochet has taken hits but never cracked and has never malfunctioned on me. I've played 3 whole days worth of paintball on 1 battery and I'm sure it still has alot of juice left in it. The only bad thing I should mention is that it is a little loud when shooting, but the sound of yoru marker firing can still be overheard. Also it doesnt fit perfectly into my feed adapter, so I had to wrap a little tape to make it fit perfectly which wasnt a problem.
Overall the ricochet is a great buy and I would highly recommend it over any of the viewloaders. I got it for $55 vs the Evo at $70+. This has never given me any problems and if it did, the company is always great in customer service, which I've heard from other people.
